AMIGOS has it own 501(3)C status under the State of Oregon; however, as the group is comprised of students and doctors of Pacific University College of Optometry, it will remain strongly affiliated with Pacific University. AMIGOS will continue to work closely with Pacific University in order to effectively carry out its primary mission of humanitarian eye care as well as its secondary mission of service learning for optometry students.

Well over 1,000 alumni of Pacific University College of Optometry have been members of AMIGOS and as such, have contributed to and benefited from the rich experience that AMIGOS makes possible. Certain privileges and obligations accompany this unique relationship.
